Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he reviews Gjusta, the latest concept from the Gjelina restaurant group in Venice. He describes it as part food hall, part delicatessen, part coffee bar and part juice bar. “What it isn’t, at least so far,” he says, “is a restaurant because they don’t have any chairs.”
WHAT TO ORDER? the smoked fish on toasted bialy, porchetta and Fontina sandwich, cauliflower salad and baklava croissant.
WHERE IS IT? 310 Sunset Ave., Venice, (310) 314-0320
